CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Vehicle vs Utility Pole with fire at Arlington Heights Road and Palatine Road, Arlington Heights in a crash that occurred during a severe thunderstorm.

Arlington Heights police officer Adam Plawer received the Arlington Heights Police Department’s L.W. Calderwood Officer of the Year Award Thursday March 8, 2018 at the Noon Rotary Club luncheon at Ditka’s Restaurant Arlington Heights.

In addition to serving as a reliable and multi-talented police officer with the Arlington Heights Police Department, officer Adam Plawer demonstrated courage when he was among the first police officers to arrive after a small SUV crashed into a wood utility pole and erupted with flames during a thunderstorm with heavy rain about 10:06 p.m. Wednesday June 28, 2017.

Plawer assessed the hazards at the scene on Arlington Heights Road near Walgreens, just south of Arlington Heights Road, and passed an arcing power line that was near the SUV. Plawer used his baton to break the driver’s side window. He then deflated the vehicle’s air bag, and unbuckled an unconscious female driver. Plawer then safely removed her from the vehicle while the interior was filling with smoke. Arlington Heights Fire Department firefighter/paramedics arrived a short time later, and treated the 20 year-old woman, and transported her to Northwest Community Hospital, where she was treated and survived her injuries. Another crew extinguished the car fire, but not before the fire completely burned the inside of the SUV and destroyed the utility pole that was hit.

According to the Arlington Heights Police Department officials who awarded Plawer, his bravery and actions saved the life of the woman, who had crashed because of medical problem. Plawer previously received the department’s Life Saver Award in August 2017 for his brave and effective actions at the crash Arlington Heights Road and Palatine Road.

Adam Plawer, age 38, joined the department in 2012 following more than seven years in the US Army with the 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne), including service as an Army Green Beret in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Plawer served in the department’s afternoon/evening shift with the patrol bureau for about five years. He is currently assigned to the criminal investigations bureau. Plawer also serves as a firearms instructor and helps lead tactical training for the Arlington Heights Police Department. He’s also a part-time school resource officer at The Academy at Forest View, Northwest Suburban High School District 214’s alternative school.

“I’ve been blessed in my life to achieve lifelong dreams of being a soldier and a police officer. My success is directly related to the people that I have served with and worked with, many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice, and even more carry scars that are not only physical but emotional.”

— Police Officer Adam Plawer

The Rotary Club presented Plawer with a $500 check for earning the L.W. Calderwood award, named after the former Arlington Heights police chief who served from 1958 to 1976.

The luncheon was attended by fellow officers, past Calderwood award winners, village officials and Rotary Club members.
